Quote of the Week:

Can you copy this Charlie Mackesy quote and display it on your wall?

 

Hello wonderful Year 6s!

How are you? Another week done, another week closer to returning! Again, we have uploaded the whole week’s work but any last minute changes will be highlighted in red

 

Tuesday afternoon update:

SECONDARY SCHOOLS - By now you should've received your secondary school place offer for September. We know this is an anxious time for many as you may not have been given the school you wanted. Please be considerate to others who may be in a different position to you and talk to us if you have any worries. Whichever school you will be going to in September, we will do transition work with you over the next few months to prepare you for your exciting adventure beyond Stokenchurch.

WELLBEING - We've added a March calendar to help with returning to school. Each day has a different idea or question to think about.

PE DAYS - From Monday 8th March, please wear normal school uniform each day except for Tuesdays and Wednesdays where you can come to school in your PE kit which you can stay in all day.

WORLD BOOK DAY - As announced in this morning's Zoom, our World Book Day book is Charles Darwin's  'On the Origin of Species'. For World Book Day (delayed in school until Thursday 11th March), we would like you to dress up as an animal. Try and use things you already own rather than buying a costume. You could make a mask for your face and wear coloured clothing linked to your chosen animal. You can wear face paint.

 

We are continuing our daily Live Zoom Lessons at 11am everyday with a Maths theme this week. The login details remain the same as the original ParentMail. Please ensure you have read through the rules before joining the sessions. The Live Lessons are open for all pupils from both Pear and Prunus class to attend. Sessions will start as promptly as possible at the time indicated. If you are having any technical difficulties, then please email us and we will try and help.

 

In addition, there will be at least one other pre-recorded lesson by one of the teachers each day.

 

Now we are offering more regular Zooms, we will not be ringing home with the same frequency. We will still be contacting families who we do not see on Zoom or receive emailed work from. Of course, if you would like to speak to us about anything, please do get in touch. 

 

We've been so impressed with the quality of your work and we've updated a few more pieces on our Wow Work board. Keep trying your hardest - we are so proud of you!

 

Happy Birthday to Harry C who celebrates turning 11 this week!

 

A reminder: please keep emailing us at yearsix@stokenchurchprimary.bucks.sch.uk 

When you send in work, please could this be just once a day and at the end of that day with all the work you have completed? We are continuing to award house points for work emailed in so if you would like to know your class charts total over the next few weeks, please email us and we shall let you know!

 

Have a great week!

Well done everyone, another week done and another week closer to returning! This week you will be coming off the 'normal' timetable and focussing on your wellbeing

Each day this week we would like you to try and complete some of the wellbeing activities that we have set for you.

This wellbeing week will give you the chance to reflect, relax, be mindful and a chance to show your gratitude. We are living in an extremely strange world at the moment, but the little and simple things in life are really important. 

 

This week you don't have to email us everyday. However if you would like to send us a picture of your finished art piece or photo's from your daily walks, please email us these on Friday. 

 

We hope you enjoy this week and fully engage in it, as it will do you the world of good.
